Many Minds: Can artificial minds think creatively?

#artificialintelligence

Our guest today is Marta Halina, a University Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. Marta's current focus is the philosophy of artificial intelligence. We discuss what philosophers can contribute to AI. We talk about AlphaGo and its stunning defeat of one of the world's most celebrated Go champions. We puzzle over whether artificial minds can think creatively.


The Human Advantage -- My IPO

#artificialintelligence

Author Jay Richards, a professor of business at the Catholic University of America, the rise of artificial intelligence and robotics presents young workers with a tremendous opportunity, which he calls the "human advantage." He doesn't deny that AI and robots will, to some degree, change the landscape of work in the coming decades. But he denounces the fatalistic gloom and doom view that AI and robots will put everyone out of work. He says that myth causes many young professionals and college students to fall into a negative fixed mindset that locks them into a self-fulfilling prophecy. Richards, in his book The Human Advantage, says that the AI and robotics will give humans a wide array of amazing opportunities--all of them based on work that only humans can do.


Tech-Enabled A2J: From Text to Machine Learning, How Legal Aid Is Leveraging Technology to Increase Access to Justice Legal Executive Institute

#artificialintelligence

In an new column, "Tech-Enabled A2J", we will take a look at how legal start-ups and legal technology innovations are impacting the push toward better Access to Justice for more citizens. Whereas LSOs have found past success in reaching clients through basic tools like texting, they are now moving to more advanced platforms like document automation to better streamline internal processes. Some are even going one step further by embarking on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) projects to determine how they can help address the 86% of civil legal problems reported by low-income Americans that aren't fully resolved. Access to justice starts with literal access: figuring out how clients best receive, digest, and act on legal information. On the lower-tech end, text messaging has proven to be a successful tool for reaching those in need.


University Students Are Learning To Collaborate on AI Projects

#artificialintelligence

This year, artificial intelligence is the buzzword. On university campuses, students who just graduated high school are checking out the latest computer science course offerings to see if they can take classes in machine learning. The truth about the age of Artificial Intelligence has caught many university administrator's attention. In the age of AI, to be successful, everyone, no matter what jobs, skill sets, or majors will at some point encounter AI in their work and their life. Penn State saw the benefits of working on AI projects early, specifically when it comes to teamwork and collaboration.

My Journey from Physics into Data Science

#artificialintelligence

I still learn new knowledge everyday with my growing passion in Data Science field. To pursue different career track as a graduating physics student there must be'Why' and'How' questions to be answered. Having been asked by a number of people about my transition from academia -- Physics to Data Science, I hope my story could answer the questions on why I decided to become a Data Scientist and how I pursued the goal, and ultimately encourage as well as inspire more people to pursue their passion. The CERN Summer Student Programme offers once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for undergraduate students of physics, computing and engineering to join one of their research projects with top scientists in multicultural teams at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. In June 2017, I was very fortunate to be accepted to join the programme.


Robots, drones and AI will carry out 90 per cent of household chores by 2040

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Experts have got together to discuss the future of home automation and reveal their predictions for the future of home automation. According to futurologists, around 90 per cent of household chores will be automated thanks to robots, drones and AI by 2040. These will be carried out by drones, robots and virtual AI butlers that will help with laundry, dusting and even making the bed, they claim. Kings College Professor Mischa Dohler and futurologist Dr Ian Pearson created a report with consumer site comparethemarket.com to predict how homes will look in two decades time. Experts have got together to discuss the future of home automation and revealed their predictions for the future of home automation.


Bnh.ai is a new law firm focused only on AI

#artificialintelligence

When VentureBeat asked Andrew Burt why he was starting an AI-focused law firm, Burt was quick to clarify that it's about AI and analytics. But that didn't answer the underlying question of why the world needs a law firm focused so precisely on this one key area. "The thesis behind the law firm is that traditional legal expertise on its own is not sufficient," said Burt, a Yale Law School alum. His partner is data scientist Patrick Hall, and together they aim to provide legal acumen around AI and analytics that's bolstered by technical understanding. "If we are going to successfully manage the risks of AI and advanced analytics, we need both of these types of expertise commingled," added Burt.


Hedera Hashgraph CPO: 'The Adoption Of Blockchain Is Going Faster Than I've Seen In IoT And AI'

#artificialintelligence

Lionel Chocron, Chief Product Officer at Hedera Hashgraph, was born in France. About twenty years ago, he came to the US west coast to receive a Master's degree at UC Berkeley, whereafter he eventually took a job working at Cisco. He spent 10 years there focusing on emerging technology--he ran the Internet of Things business unit at Cisco for years--and corporate strategy. He then joined Oracle to lead the emerging technology industry solution group, which was focusing on imaging technology, IoT, blockchain, and AI. He crossed paths in 2019 with the co-founders of Hedera Hashgraph, and grew excited about blockchain technology.


Machine Learning School in Seville 2020 BigML.com

#artificialintelligence

Machine Learning is transforming many industries while enabling new types of products and services nobody even dreamed of until recently. However, the skill set required to develop real-life Machine Learning applications have mostly remained the playground of the few privileged academics and scientists. The world and the global workforce cannot afford to stay behind the curve on this key technology enabler, so we urgently need to produce a much larger group of ML-literate professionals such as developers, analysts, managers, and subject matter experts. To meaningfully contribute on this matter, BigML is bringing the second edition of our Machine Learning School to Seville. We will hold a two-day crash course ideal for business leaders, industry practitioners, advanced undergraduates, as well as graduate students, seeking a quick, practical, and hands-on introduction to Machine Learning to solve real-world problems.
